The last two pages don't work for me. Anyone else with the same problem?

Been a few days now— did I make it too hard? Are you all still scratching your heads? There is a bit of a “red herring” here regarding the power plant— but it’s not too far off. Need another clue?

K-225

Fi 282

World's first gas turbine powered helicopter.

Intermeshing rotors.




Nope. Another clue-- this one doesn't have a rotary wing. And the "innovative features" are a bit subtle--as in you won't necessarily recognize them at first glance--in fact two of them can't be seen at all just looking at it unless you look VERY close...it is a VERY unusual aircraft...the plot thickens...

Ok! This one has been on my mind lately for some reason, so here goes!

Here are the clues:

1) Innovative aircraft designed to support Naval operations without an aircraft carrier, established a notable “first”.
2) Two engines.
3) The concept behind it’s use was based on a late WWII Axis design.
4) It was a member of a particular “class” of aircraft with three unique features (for the time).

Name the aircraft, the “first”, the Axis design concept, and two of the three unique innovations incorporated in the aircraft.

Enjoy!

LN514, a Vickers Wellington bomber was built in 23 hours and 50 minutes in 1943, as a propaganda stunt, to show how fast Allied aircraft production was going. I think I’d have been a little reluctant to fly it for the “check flight”!

Holding my breath on an international flight because the guy next to me hasn't showered in years.

Again, what I'm looking for has nothing to do with human factor, bad weather, technical malfunction or a combination of any of the above.

It could be true, actually, but I don't think such statistics exist...

Hi there

I don't know if it's still the case, but I think about 30 years ago passengers suffering heart attacks accounted for the majority of the deaths.

But Israel's earlier reply stated:

"I never said passenger deaths... "

So, I'm stumped.

All the best
